O.K. Here we are again getting ready for the Shreveport Bead Retreat.  The Wyndham Garden Hotel  1419 East 70th Street, Shreveport, LA 71105 We are further from the Casinos but closer to some great shopping area. 

For those of you who have attended the Texas Bead Retreat or the Arkansas Bead Cave this will be very similar.   I have modified the registration form so Thursday could be included in the registration fee for those of you coming in on Thursday.  If yo plan on arriving earlier than Thursday you should contact the hotel directly to make your reservations for those days.  The retreat actually starts on Friday but usually meet on Thursday before noon to setup and go to lunch then the fun begins.   Your hotel room might Not be available until 3:00 p.m. The meals will be buffet style  - a set menu and I will try to select something that everyone will enjoy. Any special diet requirements can be handled if I know in advance. This will be a fun filled weekend with Beaders coming to share and learn from each other.  You may contact me at iwilli71129@gmail.com with any questions.

Reservation will be on a first come first reserve basis with prior registrants given first choice at the available spaces.  Your registration fee will guarantee your spot at the retreat.  If you are sharing a room please let me know your roommate. 

Challenge: This year's challenge hasn't been decided but it will be a challenge  ... Prizes are great as usual! 

Bracelet swap: Make a bracelet in your size to swap.  Please limit your bracelets for the swap to two. We will do the swap on Saturday after supper.  Bracelets should be made in half inch sizes ex. - 6 1/2, 7, 7 1.2, 8, 8 1/2, etc.  Please measure accurately.  

White Elephant Box:  Bring your unwanted items to share with others your rejects might be someone's wants... II have been looking through my stash and pulling things I will never use.  I am sure my white elephants will be someone else's treasures.
Classes: Please check the Class page for this year's classes as they are posted and previous year's classes.  For some I have been unable to upload photos at this time... 


Gerry Milton of Bead Crazee  in Tyler sill be our bead vendor for our shopping convenience. Gerry has a great selection and I am sure you will not be disappointed.   If you have something special you would like for her to bring please let me know in advance so I can pass on the request or you can email her at  miltongerry@hotmail.com.
